Barely Used Pets (dog)

My name is Amaryllis and I am a female black lab mix. I was found in Eastern Kentucky tied up to a pole where I was abandoned. Barely Used Pets was kind enough to take me and my soon-to-be-born puppies! I am a very well mannered dog looking for a nice home to relax and grow old in. I get along well with other dogs/cats and an great around children. Life is better now and my puppy side has been showing quite a lot. I’m full of energy and love. I am up to date on all shots, scheduled to be spayed, and my adoption fee is $150.
